Hello,

I am beginner in photography. I need help in below doubts :

1) Which teleconverter (14EII, 14EIII, 17EII, 20EII or 20EIII) will be best / suitable for Nikon Micro 105mm Lens ?

2) If i connect Nikon Teleconverter 14e-iii (magnification is 1.4x), to my Nikon 105mm micro lens which having native magnification of 1x, then how much total / final magnification will i get ?

Simple answer: A 1.4x teleconverter will increase the magnification by 40% at all focus settings of the lens you are using.

If your Nikon 105 micro is a manual focus lens, the correct 1.4x tc tc is the Nikon 14B. If it is an AF 105micro it all depends on which specific AF 105mm micro lens you are using. Please tell us which AF 105 you have.

Here is a compatibility chart from Nikon. Note that for your lens, AF is not possible. when it is used with a teleconverter.

The manual for the lens on page 18 has some impt info too:

I just borrowed a 105 f2.8 VR Macro for a couple of weeks and used my TC-14E III on it most of the time. That converter matched up VERY well with that lens!! AF speed and sharpness were both excellent. ;)
